Book Description

26 Nov 1992
Listeners, performers, students and teachers will find here the analytical tools they need to understand and interpret musical evidence from the baroque era. Scores for eleven works, many reproduced in facsimile to illustrate the conventions of 17th and 18th century notation, are included for close study. Readers will find new material on continuo playing, as well as extensive treatment of singing and French music. The book is also a concise guide to reference materials in the field of baroque performance practice with extensive annotated bibliographies of modern and baroque sources that guide the reader toward further study. First published by Ashgate (at that time known as Scolar Press) in 1992 and having been out of print for some years, this title is now available as a print on demand title.

By Theseus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Mary Cyr's book on the performance of baroque music is a book that manages to be expert and readable at the same time. Cyr, a Viol da Gamba and cello player, stresses "both the boundaries and the freedom that were inherent in baroque performing techniques." Her discussions of articulation and of the "tempi and spirit" of this era of music are particularly lucid.
